A pray on the book of fun

Man, I’m so glad people and companies are producing fun stuff yet. Preacher is like a bless with all those shallow sitcoms or political power swappers or zombish shows.

It is like the city the show takes place. Tiny but with lots of mistery and FUN.

A vampire that rains from sky and eat a cow? Yeah. An angel who does not die after being brutal murdered and reborns with a new body almost instantly? 3 for start. A literally ass-face guy??? Please!

I could go on, but I it’s so good to watch and figure out everything that I’ll leave it a mistery for now.

Imagine if Tarantino would ever make a TV show. Better, don’t. Go watch Preacher.

Now I will look for the comics to get more about this very nice story!

 

 

 

Alan Awake

In the need of a Silent Hill game for the PC, here comes Alan Wake.

With the mix of a foggy city, Alone in the Dark bright lights, Stephen King aliens and twisted novels, Resident Evil shooting and some entertaining plot, bam! Alan Wake is made.

I’ve really enjoyed the game, even with it’s repetitive combat, dull environment exploring and sometimes empty puzzles. The narrative is a very strong point, at times it reminds a TV show, others a book being read, others a movie. A very unique narrative.

It’s a well made game, runs smooth on the PC, got great landscapes, sometimes I even stopped to enjoy the view.

I don’t know if I would play it again, but I’ll put it close to the “dear” ones in the collection. Especially because the lack of “Silent Hill kinda games” in the PC right now.

Beware the tuurngait

After I’ve played Amnesia – The Dark Descent, horror games don’t seem to put me to high levels of tension.

But this is from the company that made Amnesia, so it is supposed to be good.

And it is!

Not that scary and suspense builder, but story driven good. For me, at very moments, I could see where newer games got their stuff from.

Not a game that I’ll be playing again in a nigh future, but worth every nickel.

Now I’ve got to jump to the last part. The game was planned to be over by this chapter, but they made one more, so I will be playing it!

Hail King Ragnar

A tv series with one episode that made me cry. That same episode made look stupid. The character of the show made me look like a fool.

Hail king Ragnar!

This series is one of those that is somehow unique. Maybe it’s the storyline that don’t become slow paced, wandering over infinite little arcs that overlap in time, or maybe because IT’S FUCKING VIKINGS DOING VIKING STUFF!!!

Odin! Axe! Blood! Sex! Ale! Feast! What more can be said? What more is needed??

Okay, let us try a farmer who wants to see the world and is cleaver enough, smart enough to become not only earl, but king, even when he doesn’t aim for that. And them let us try that almost everyone want his position and will fight him, commit treason against him, raid his property and much more going on.

All time favorite already! Anxious for the next season!

Not so silent snow

Silence in the Snow is for Trivium what Load is to Metallica.

It’s a break, a milestone, a new era to the band carrer.

Simply put, no screaming. Only clean and/or slightly harsh singing.

And it’s good. Not epic, but fine. The songwritting also changed a bit. Simplified structure, shorter lengths and slower beats.

The song I liked the most is one of the bonus one, The Darkness Of My Mind. That song has a dark, sorrow like feeling, a somehow confort found inside the suffering of our minds. Matt just hit right in my feelings.

What really shakes my head is the groove of songs like Dead and Gone and Pull Me From The Void, with their lower tunning and mid paced rhythm.

Until The World Goes Cold is a THE masterpiece of Trivium. The video of this song is also a pretty nice piece to watch, specially when I caught a glimpse of Brazil’s flag. This is like a tribute to all the hardworking they’ve been putting through all this years trying to make a living from the art they enjoy¬†making. So much feelings around this song.

All around, good melodies, really good ones, like you can sing them easily after one or two listenings. The new drummer is also so good, like he isn’t there to just show off, he understands what the songs are supposed to be and deliver the right beat so nicely.

Wrapping up, a fresh title on the Trivium’s album set, best melodies I’ve seen lately, awesome drumming and a strong record at all.

 

 

The Bat DLCish

This entry of the series could have been a nice DLC for the Arkhan City, even being a little too lengthy for a DLC.

What we have here are 8 iconic villains from the Bat comic stories and they need to be beaten. Simple like that.

The scenarios look like a snowy Arkhan City setting and don’t have that darkish mood from the 2 previous entries.

As we got new toys, like the detective rewind/reconstruct history mode, the game still very interesting and fun to play.

Still Batman, still lots of fun, still nice to beat dumb people down, still nice to play “in da shadows”.

Thinman, catch me in the woods

Slenderman,The arrival, The woods, The dark, The very tall and thin and using a suit man, The scary, The psycho hunt, The tension builder, The game I liked, The game I spent most time wandering, The game I don’t know I’ll replay it but I’m keeping installed.

Good run, good experience, short, with nice story, simple thumbs up!
